Screening on Saturday 10th April 2021

As we enter April, we convene another exciting JAFWA screening night, with its usual program of anime goodness.
Just a reminder to come early, as the COVID countermeasures limit the number of people we can admit.

This week, we have a preview episode that has some applicability to people who attend conventions. This night we will have a double episode of “Vinland Saga”, to end the series (well first Season anyway). Here is hoping they animate further chapters of the manga of this fictionalised account of an Icelandic Saga.

Jaku-chara Tomozaki-kun Vinland Saga

A query:- Do we have enough interest to try doing an auction during the marathon screening of April 24?

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible second wave of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
Help would be welcome during set-up and pack-up due to the extra duties imposed by COVID-19. Please arrive early to confirm personal details due to COVID 19 regulations. There will be Contract Tracing, either by the SafeWA app on your keitai (mobile phones), or by signing in at the contact tracing sheet at the front desk. And we need to wipe the chairs down with disinfectant before they are stacked away.

Below is the tentative program for the evening of Saturday April 10th, 2021.
